The goal of this class is to teach math and science concepts in an exploratory, fun way to get students excited about STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and comfortable with concepts encountered in higher math and science coursework.

Students will build a project in each class and sometimes do related individual or group activities. Projects will vary, depending on the math or science topics for each class. Here’s a list of some potential build your own projects: Spirograph, lissajous drawing machine, projector, fan, solar pendulum, gear set, shipping box, DC motor, electric generator, crankshaft toy, perpetual motion machine, bit art, bridge, sound displayer, zoetrope, dice roller, mini-basketball court, pinball mechanism, kinetic sand, bouncy ball, and lava lamp. Contact Mrs. Shimada for the final project list and course schedule.

STEM is an acronym for “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math” and is often used to reference studies or education of the student in four specific disciplines – science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Students build these projects to understand math and science concepts and to connect those concepts to engineering, technology, and real world applications. The course intends to show students how to be creative and resourceful with every day materials, as well as introduce them STEM-related materials, parts, and tools. Some math and science concepts will be taught in a in an age-relevant way. Periodically, demos may be brought in. Students wanting more content and challenge can take home optional worksheets for vocabulary and concepts review, applications exercises, and related math problems. The course also intends to point out God’s mastery in creation and the strong faith of famous contributors in the STEM field.

This High School Psychology class incorporates a multi-level program of extensive interaction between a team of teachers and a group of students. Instructors will hold student’s work to either High School or Honors standards, as requested by the student. Studies in Psychology provide students with learning experiences and information about the presumptions and methodologies of historical and modern psychological theories as they are presented academically and as they influence the culture. They will better understand the physiology, theories and underlying assumptions in basic psychological studies and conclusions, and develop skills for dealing with them effectively, in an encouraging environment. Students will gain the knowledge, confidence and practical skills to interact with psychological presumptions and make decisions which are wise, honor God, and are beneficial for themselves and their culture. Logic and critical thinking skills will be developed, as well as listening skills, writing skills, research skills, and discernment.
